Misbah, questioned about Saaed Ajmal, who has been reported for bowling with a suspected illegal action following the first Test, says he hopes that the bowler will be fine.
Having been cleared once before, Misbah is hopeful, but maintains that he and his team-mates are concentrating solely on this game as they try to level the series following Sri Lanka's dramatic seven-wicket win in Galle.
Mathews, meanwhile, admits that the game will be an emotional one as Test cricket says farewell to Jayawardene, whose 148th and final match will come at his home ground at the Sinhalese Sports Club.
Nevertheless, Sri Lanka will be doing their best to treat the game as they would any other, Mathews adding that they hope to "play some very good cricket and win."
